Any good mechanics?


Two part question:

1. Can anyone tell me how to change the spark plugs on an jaguar v12 engine from 1985?

I've seen estimates of time ranging from three hours to a full day. And considering the rat's nest that resides over the area, and the removal of such, a little instruction would help, since the manual in none to specific.

2. Are there any doctors that are capable of fixing this broken body?

Why do I ask this question, especially under a mechanic header? Because that's what a doctor is - an overpaid mechanic. I haven't met one doctor yet that could fix the problem, rather than find a stop gap measure to alleviate the symptoms.

The human body is an organic machine, made up of a program ran by the genetic code within us all. The various components that comprise our bodies are just like the components of a car. Sometimes, they can be fixed, other times, they must be replaced. But every problem can be solved through proper solutions. So, when I come into contact with a doctor, I have a certain expectation that that individual should be able to solve the problem before them, much like a mechanic, or a computer troubleshooter (concepts people, concepts). So when I come across a doctor that just wants to cut out the symptoms, rather than solve the disease, it pisses me off. Because there is always a solution to the problem, it's just a matter of spending the time to find it out.

And to me, the doctor should know what they are doing and be able to solve the problem correctly the first time, not coming up with random solutions that may or may not work, and then lie to the patient about how it is going to work.

Especially if the doctor can't convincingly lie to me (had this happen a couple times).

Moral of the story: not every doctor graduated with honors, or is even above average. But they should be, or else they shouldn't be doctors.

Very true, you have to graduate to be a doctor, unfortunatley in a class of 250, Dr #250 is probably the one you went and saw. As for the car, I know nothing about them and am lucky enough to have a dad that is a mechanic...I will however think good thoughts that both issues are resolved quickly.
